The Clanz - Alternate Earth Campaign Setting
Lucifer presides over all the evil planes. The original a Lawful Evil (or NE? due to his chaotic disregard for God’s orders) deity, his power grew drastically when Yahweh (or St Peter or other such pre-afterlife guardian) began funneling the souls of sinners from the Chaotic Evil planes to the Lawful Evil planes. This was due to the increasing intelligence and forethought displayed in sentient, developing races. Having a much greater ability to calculate and plan for an influx of souls, he began a full scale invasion of the other Evil planes, while Yahweh was busy presiding over Eden and later ??? and Nod (many centuries before the flood).
Lucifer’s invasion was a costly success but now he presided over mostly free demons and daemons. The hierarchy in the more chaotic planes was changed to place arch-devils above arch-demons by virtue of magic items or defensible locations. But now demons were bound to many laws held by devils, including but not limited to:
- Legally entering host bodies
- Answering to the authorities for crimes against Law
- Laws of Hell
